Prepare to be slain everyone. For the September 2016 cover of W magazine, Rihanna is imagined as Furiosa, the last woman on earth and the ruling warrior queen in a dark, dystopia future. The photoshoot was captured by photographer Steven Klein and designed by Edward Enninful

To say she looks gorgeous would be a severe understatement.

With ensembles from Christian Dior and Prada to Cartier and Manolo Blahnik, Rih Rih kills every look, pose, and design.

"I take random inspiration from everywhere," said Edward Enninful, the creative and fashion director for the magazine. "I was obsessed with these pictures of military men running around with dogs on their backs, and I was like 'Oh, that’s a statement about today.' The thing about Rihanna is that she never wants to repeat something she’s done, and she did a video where she wore lots of camouflage – so I knew I didn’t want to do a military story. Instead, I wanted to do something that was set in the future world. We thought, 'Wouldn’t it be nice to take this concept and apply it to the last woman on earth, the last warrior on earth, really."

She’s not scared, and that’s what I love about her," Enninful said. "She's royalty. When I talked to Rihanna, I told her that I didn’t think she should wear clothes off the runway because a queen gets her clothes made." If this is any indication of her upcoming performance in Bates Motel, someone call 9-1-1..
